but the minuscule amount of credibility you might have had disappeared when I realised a german was lecturing me on international co-operation and good relations. You might have forgotten the events of the 20th Century, and your country may well be taking advantage of the chaos they caused, but don't for one minute think that everyone has forgotten. Fortunately you can't erase history and if you actually understood anything about history you'd understand that's where all the  important lessons are. One important lesson is to beware any treaties or agreements written by Germans because history tells that generally they aren't worth the paper they're written on.

I think you should stop living in the past. The world moved on and you obviously have not.

If you want to know about "dishonourable agreements" and invasion of foreign countries, I suggest you look very hard at the history of British colonialism. Take a LONG look at the slave trade, Cecil Rhodes, the East India Company and the Opium Wars as a starter for 10, then look at what we did to the Tasmanian Aborigines and our renaging of all the deals we had with the occupants of Egypt and Palestine after WW1 ... I could go on but hypocrisy doesn't need more than a few examples to prove a point.

Thats all well and good but when I start taking lessons on diplomacy from a German will be the day hell freezes over. You may well be another left wing apologist hell bent on making the British people feel guilty for breathing but we've had enough of that in the last 15 years thanks.

Careful, Papilune, one could think you have something against Germans. 

I don't personally, I lived there for three years, I found the German people on the whole to be decent, it's the leadership I haven't been so keen on, just like my own country.

Did you join a German club? In my bicycle club, we had/have Spaniards, Americans, Iranians, Italians, French, Poles. No English yet, but this can very well be a coincidence.

I was only young at the time and wasted an opportunity to do many things, I wish I had made more of an effort to get involved with German life. However, I very much enjoyed Paprika chicken with curry sauce (not mayo, never liked the stuff, I know Germans love it) :-).
